Equity has sent a letter to the Actors' Equity Association of America to show we stand in solidarity with their strike action. The full letter reads:
Equity UK wishes to express our solidarity with members of our sister union, Actors' Equity Association of America, in their strike action against the Broadway League over negotiations on show development agreements.
The talent of Equity members is crucial in developing shows for production - and profit - and they should be properly compensated for their contribution, in the US and around the world.
Equity UK looks forward to the successful resolution of the dispute in favour of AEA members and stands united to that end,
Christine Payne, General Secretary
Maureen Beattie, President
